Puffed Wheat or Popcorn Balls

Mrs. Lutz (who is this?)

  • 1 c. sugar
  • ½ c. corn syrup
  • ½ c. water
  • ¼ tsp. salt

Mix above ingredients in large pan. Stir until sugar dissolves. Cook slowly until small bit dropped in cold water forms hard ball (not too brittle). Remove from fire. Add:

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Pour over 2 quarts (11 cups) puffed wheat. Stir well. Cool. With buttered hands press into balls. Yield: 20 (like tennis balls).
